LSAISD Education Leadership Development Program
Leadership SAISD is a FREE 9-month education leadership development program that provides community members the information and skills to become thought leaders around education.
Participants develop a nuanced understanding of the unique challenges and opportunities facing school communities with topics such as school finance, policy and advocacy, and educational equity.
Cohort members meet once a month to hear from influential speakers and experts, review best practices, research, explore equity in education, and conduct site visits. Together, participants and experts explore the issues that shape public education today with an emphasis on real-world solutions and practical problem solving. Seminars provide a factual, non-partisan look at how schools function.
Cohort members explore the most relevant topics in education today including:
Data & Research in Education
Education Policy & Advocacy
Health & Wellness in Education
21st Century Learning
Education Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion
Normally, classes are held one Friday per month from 9:00 A.M to 2:00 P.M at Cafe College and tours take place throughout the city.
